ATLANTA BUILDING EFFICIENCY ORDINANCE

Baker Engineering has helped over 600 Buildings Benchmark their energy performance and earn their Energy Star Label 

ABOUT

The City of Atlanta has a goal to become a top-tier city for sustainability. This includes the goal of reducing commercial energy consumption 20% by 2020.  The Mayor’s Office of Sustainability held over 165 meetings with stakeholders in crafting the Atlanta Commercial Energy Efficiency Ordinance and Atlanta’s City Council unanimously voted to approve the ordinance on April 20, 2015.  In the City of Atlanta, 66% of the energy use in the city comes from our building stock accounting for 58% of our CO2 emissions. Commercial buildings are the single largest consumer of energy within the city, and as a result, the largest source of polluting emissions in the city. This ordinance aims to reduce emissions while saving the commercial sector money.
